As Cornelius and his companions,

it was undoubtedly the divine will

The Hired Man.
As I am a hired man and read
the Special Fanners' Institute I
want lo have the space in the
"Aftermath" to take exception to
my friend Mr. G. S. Kemp, of
Stanlterry, Mo. He says in his
part of tho world the farmers
have the fashion to denounce
trust and combines, but if he
knows no more of trust and com
bines than he does of the differ
enco between a buggy and a car
riago he certainly does not know
much. He says the hired man.
with a few exceptions, is a
failure, mostly unfortunates and
a class of run-away from homo
loys who aro entitled to very
little respect from any one. lie
certainly ca-ts u slur on ninety
nine out of every huudred of tho
hired men of our Country, for as
a rule they are respectable men.
The man that owns the fnrm and
house in which I am writing is
the owner of 200 acres of land,
started sixteen years ago as a
hired man and to day is worth
HO,K'0. Another man owns 320
acres of as good land as can be
found in central Iowa, herds of
cattle can be seen in his fields.
nnd two carloads of cattle aud
hogs in his feed yard, everything
he bus being free from debt, with
large share in a state bank '.n
central Iowa. This man worked
;is a hired man twenty-live years
ago. and to day is worth $10,000.
I do not call uch men failures.
1 could name scores of others.
When you speak of run -away-
from-home boy, my mind goes
back to history. llunj:unin Frank
lin, the philosopher and stales-
men, was suc:i a uoy. ins renown
was spread over the whole civil
ized world ami honors were
heaped upon him; he was a
ruu-awuy-froin homo boy but
he stood before kings. Mr. Kemp
says he lias hud hired un'i. go to

house, by his article I got the
idea that ho begrudged ihvm
their presence at the table. He
spunks of tho hired mau pulling
in at 3 o'clock in the morning,
hut failed to state which ho
palled iu, a carriage or a cattish.
Ho speaks of scouting ttie country
for another man; may bo the
country needs cleaning. He
speaks of the green Irish or Ger
man-not knowing much. Now
who ever heard of a green Irish
man or German? I do not, believe
this man could get a noble Irish
man or a btalwnrt Germau to
work for him at any price, lor I
believe they know too much to
work for such a m m. J believe
